The Southeastern Conference Men's Basketball Tournament opens during lunch on Thursday in the Big Easy.
The third game of the day will feature your Auburn Tigers.
As the 10 seed, we were able to finish the regular season at .500 with a Senior Day win (which Jay wrote about) vs. the LSU Tigers on Saturday. Auburn's opponent in New Orleans is the Ole Mississippi Rebels, the SEC's 7th Place finisher.
Auburn and Ole Miss played 90 minutes of basketball this year, the game in Auburn went to two overtimes). Auburn is 0-1-1 in regulation against Ole Miss. A neutral floor game down I-55 from Oxford and just across Mississippi from Mobile and the rolling Plains will be a test of which team travels well, which team the Kentucky fans (Big Blue Nation) like more and how the players handle adversity.
